Inspired by the iconic bassists Ray Brown and Dave Holland, Italian bassist Giuseppe Millaci and his vogue trio—compelling pianist Amaury Faye and drummer Lionel Beuvens have themselves a real sweet, fluid listening disc that poses much promise for the years ahead.

"Nostalgia Op.1" sets the course early with an intuitive, rolling ease that belies these young players years. "Imaging the Fourth Dimension" continues the flow as each player establishes his place in the mix while allowing the other members plenty of space and time. "Unknown Land" displays the trio's will for drive and turbulence. Really a great track to listen to. "Song For Clarice" is a romantic, subtle study and "Room 317" and "Lollipop" bound with youthful energy and braggadocio. A fairly standard take on "Skylark" closes this surprisingly resilient recording.

Track Listing: Nostalgia Op. 1; Imagining The Fourth Dimension; Travel To; Unknown Land; Song For Clarice; Crazy Night, Lazy Day; Room 317; Lollipop; Skylark.

Personnel: Giuseppe Millaci: doublebass; Amaury Faye: piano; Lionel Beuvens: drums.
